Murder Charges Dropped Against Chicago Mother and Teen Son After Review of Video: Lawsuit Now Filed

Carlishia Hood/Chicago Police Department

Prosecutors for Cook County, Illinois, have reportedly dropped the murder charges and all other charges against Carlishia Hood and her 14-year-old son involving the death of Jeremy Brown. The prosecutors reportedly arrived at this decision after reviewing video footage from the crime scene. According to CBS News Chicago, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx's office said the charges were overturned "based upon our continued review and in light of emerging evidence." "Based upon the facts, evidence, and the law, we are unable to meet our burden of proof in the prosecution of these cases," Foxx's office added."

On June 18th, while Carlishia and Jeremy were at the Maxwell Street Express restaurant, an argument ensued between them, and he threatened her before punching her multiple times. Hood's teenage son allegedly entered the restaurant shooting Brown with his mother's firearm after she texted him. The 35-year-old mother was held on a $3 million bond before the charges were dropped.

According to CBS News, neither Hood nor her son has criminal records, and she legally possessed the firearm that her son used during the shooting. The family filed a complaint and lawsuit against the city of Chicago. Hood and her legal team spoke during a press conference. View the link here.
